This South Sudanese Runner Represents the Whole World—Help Tell His Story

by Bill Gallagher

April 7, 2013

At the press conference in London, Marial told reporters, “I am representing the whole world, basically.” It was then that I saw the potential for this story to be bigger than just a film. I want to bring the message to people that standing up for personal ideals is important. Marial wants to travel back to South Sudan to get the attention of the government so that they'll take the necessary steps to make it possible for the world's newest country to join the rest of the world in the International Association of Athletics Federations and legitimately compete in world athletic events. If you'd like to help him make this change and tell his story, support our project on Kickstarter. Add it to your To-Do list.

Bill Gallagher was the Line Producer of the Academy Award nominated documentary If A Tree Falls
